I’d like to go to Kyoto again

and pray outside the Great Teacher’s Hall

I’d like to go again to Japan

Stand hand in hand, with someone,

who loves me, as I am.

 

I’d like to go to Tokyo again

Stand without bitterness in the heart of Shibuya Square

I’d like to go again to Japan

Stand hand in hand, with someone,

who loves me, as I am.

 

I’d like to ride the bullet train again

whizzing through, a magical, mystical land

I’d like to go again to Japan

Stand hand in hand, with someone,

who loves me, as I am.

 

As I am, as I am

As I am.

 

I’d like to float on a mountain top again

in water that lifts me up

and pulls my troubles down

With a couple of friends and a perfectly warmed sake

floating, on a cloud

 

I’d like to sleep on Goddess Mountain again

Rise to meet the dawn, with no heavy heart to bear

I’d like to go again to Japan

Stand hand in hand, with someone,

who loves me, as I am.

 

As I am, as I am

As I am. 

 

I’d like to go to Kyoto again

and pray inside the Great Teacher’s Hall

I’d like to go again to Japan

Stand hand in hand, with someone,

who loves me, as I am.
